Frank Capra and the War Activities Committee. Public Domain Footage Total propaganda film narrated by using a sermon in a black church, interspersing the talk with footage. Shows the bravery of black soldiers throughout all of America's wars. Never mentions slavery, jim crow, segregation, racism, just how important it is to fight for the land of the free and defend the US against racism. All the units shown are segregated.

Educated African Americans valuing their country
Disregard the video description. THAT is the true propaganda. This video shows a black minister teaching his congregation about the importance of freedom and how it should be valued (clearly black Americans should be the MOST fervent defenders of freedom, due to their tragic past), but the FDR library clearly thinks its more important to attack the US over the events of 150 years ago than it is to value the fact that the constitution applies to african americans as well. Given the history of the democratic party, this is no big surprise. Focus on the negative, ignore the positive, spin everything as racist and evil. Unless its communism, then its amazing and new! give me a break...
